Look! Installing a New FLOR Area Rug

I am so excited to share my new FLOR rug with AT! I was an early adapter when it came to FLOR. After two moves, almost six years and a hot-tempered chihuahua puppy, my first FLOR purchase had seen better days. I'm sending our old, abused FLOR back to Interface to be recycled. After searching for a replacement area rug, we decided on FLOR again. It's inexpensive, easy to take care of and the company is environmentally progressive...

We chose FLOR's Fedora tile in Chartreuse. The felt-like surface is one of the softest, and the super-thin tile is made of 80% recycled material. An extremely low-pile in rug speak, it would be easy to keep clean with a canister vacuum. Fedora is sold by CB2 and it was easy to pick up twelve tiles at the Manhattan store. At only $7 a tile, Fedora is FLOR's least expensive tile!

After pulling up the old tiles, we cleaned and vacuumed the floor. Our rental's hardwood floors are seriously damaged and uneven, so we were instantly reminded of why we needed a rug...

When, laying out the tiles, I used the strips of hardwood as a guide to keep the rug straight.

FLOR has abandoned the original rubber-cement-like stickers that kept the carpet stuck to the ground. Now, the company uses these larger adhesive stickers to stick the carpet tiles to other carpet tiles, without damaging the floor. A welcome improvement.

The seams are nearly invisible.

I love our new FLOR!
